  • COMPILERS NOTE: One of Agnes' sons compiled record from the original diary of Joseph Kingston on his voyage to Australia in 1878. Together with the transcript of the diary he indicates that "our grandparents James and Sarah Kingston with the following members of the family emigrated to Queensland landing in Maryborough in 1880 from the sailing ship "Scottish Lass" (actually the "Sheir").The following came out together. James and Sarah Kingston, son William and wife Ellen (actually came in 1883 on the "El Dorado"), son James and wife, I forget her name, daughter Sarah Ann, son John, daughter Patience, also Willie Kingston son of Tom Kingston and Polly Thorne Toms daughter. The only members of the family of James and Sarah Kingston left in England were the oldest son Thomas the father of Willie Polly and Ross Turner, Emma the oldest daughter and her husband John Bircher, Agnes Elizabeth and her husband John Poxon.
    Joseph sent the pages of the diary to his sister Agnes Elizabeth Poxon in 1878. We took care and preserved the document until her death in 1921. It then passed on to her son JW Poxon who has taken care of it. When in Australia I promised Uncle Jo's grandson Herbert Kingston of Maryborough, Queensland that he should have the document which he should receive by the end of 1965."

Johann Alexander Herrlick

M, b. circa 1830, d. 1884
  • Johann Alexander Herrlick was born circa 1830.
  • On 10 February 1870 The Darling Downs Gazette reported:- : "John Alexander Herrlich was brought up at the Police Court on Tuesday last, charged with the wilful murder of Michael Klein at the Cedar Scrub, near Perseverance Station, on the 12th day of February last. The prisoner appeared to be suffering from extreme exhaustion, and was accommodated with a seat during the examination. Sub-Inspector Harris conducted the case for the Crown.
    Acting Sub-Inspector McCarthy said he apprehended the prisoner between 10 and 11 o'clock at night on Friday, the 8th April last, at a house on the Highfields road, about twelve miles from Toowoomba ; produced the warrant, and said to prisoner- "The charge against yon is that, on the 12th day of February last, you did unlawfully kill one Michael Klein near the Cedar Scrub at Perseverance Station ;" prisoner paused for a few seconds, after which he said, "I came to these people to give myself up ;" witness brought him next day to Toowoomba, and confined him in the watch house. By the Bench: I arrested the prisoner between 10 and 11 o'clock at night at Jost Kahler's house on the Highfields road ; four other men were present, namely, Murray, Heinrich Kahler, Jost Kahler, and another German, whom he (witness) did not know. Examination by Mr Sub-inspector Harris continued: On 12th April witness and Acting-Sergeant Shea proceeded again to Highfields, and saw the gun now produced taken from beneath some bark at the rear of Heinrich Kahler's house and in close proximity to where the prisoner was apprehended; believed the gun to be loaded in both barrels, as the nipples were capped and the ramrod would not go down the whole length of the barrel ; could not at present say what the barrels contained. The Court adjourned for a few minutes in order to give Sergeant Shea sufficient time to draw the charges, but as the operation occupied the court some considerable period, the gun was taken to the watch-house, and subsequently unloaded in the presence of McCarthy. The Police Magistrate having read over the evidence of the previous witness, inquired of the prisoner whether he had any intention to ask questions, and the prisoner replied that the only questions he would ask would be put in the Court. Catherine Frances Ambrose, daughter of Mrs. Kynock of Perseverance Station, said she had known the prisoner for some time past ; remembered seeing him at his hut in the Perseverance Scrub about December last, and had a convention with him in reference to the Kleins ; he said, "When will the Kliens be out again,'' and witnessed answered, "They will be out next week ;" prisoner then remarked, "If I catch them taking away any more of my cedar, this time by God I will shoot him ;" Michael and George Klein were the only persons taking cedar from the scrub at that time, and to the best of her belief she thought he intended to shoot Michael Klien: knew the gun produced, having seen it frequently in the prisoner's possession; know it particularly by the stock, as the witness lent him the tools to make it with ; had no doubt whatever that the gun belonged to the prisoner; saw the dead body of Michael Klien being conveyed from the scrub in a spring cart on the Sunday after the murder. William Kane said that in the month of January last he was in the employment of Mrs Kynoch, of Perseverance Station; was sent to the Cedar Scrub at that time by Mrs Kynoch for a load of cedar, and saw the prisoner; when he first came up to witness he said, "You knock off; I will not allow any person to take that cedar; I have been down to Ipswich and received legal advice to arrest any teams that come to the scrub to take away cedar." Witness told him that he had received an authority from Michael Klein to take away a load; and he replied, '" will not allow Michael Klein or any other person to take cedar from there, and if Michael Klein docs so I have advice what to do, and I will do it if I swing by the neck the next minute." Michael Klein was a carrier working at the scrub about that time, and witness had seen him removing timber on several occasions previous to the time now mentioned; saw the body of Michael Klein lying dead in a cart, when it was being brought from the Cedar Scrub, about nine or ten weeks ago; knew prisoner quite well, and seldom, if ever, saw him without a gun; believed the gun now produced to be the one usually carried by the prisoner. Dr Roberts said that about 2 o'clock on the morning of the 13th of February last he held a post mortem examination on the body of a man named Michael Klein, at the Perseverance Cedar Scrub ; the body was quite cold having been some time dead; on the right side of the lower part of the breast bone there was a gun-shot wound ; the edges were blackened with gunpowder, and the charge had entered the body by this wound ; it had then carried away a portion of the heart, passed through the right lung, and out at a second wound in the back, between the blade bone and the right side of the spine ; the wound in the back was slightly above the wound in the breast ; the effect of such a wound would be instantaneous death ; the wound might have been caused by a bullet, or a charge of shot discharged at very close quarters, and from the appearance of the wound witness would say that the shot must have been fired within two feet of the body; the deceased was a remarkably healthy looking man. Terence McCall said he was a carrier, residing at Highfields, and on the 12th day of February last he was getting cedar from the Perseverance Scrub; knew the prisoner, and saw him about 1 o'clock on the afternoon of that day passing through the scrub; he was then carrying a gun the same as that now produced; witness had often seen the gun in prisoner's possession. Constable McCafferty said that he accompanied Dr Roberts to the Perseverance Scrub, on the night of the 12th February last, and on the morning of the next day, between I and 2 o'clock, Dr Roberts made a post mortem examination on the body of a man named Michael Klein; witness assisted in removing the clothing from the body, which he now p[roduced, as well as a number of bullets received from the Police Magistrate a few days afterwards. On the application of Mr Sub-Inspector Harris the further hearing of the case was adjourned to Thursday, at 10 o'clock."
  • Johann Alexander Herrlick died in 1884 in HMS Prison. Johann's death sentince was later remitted to 15 years imprisonment. However he died the year before he was to be released.
